#IN-LS1226. By Joy Morgan Dey. Illustrated by Nikki Johnson. Meet Agate the moose.

This stunning book features original watercolors and a poignant, witty message that resonates with anyone who has ever felt like they don't quite belong. Includes bonus pages with information on all the birthstones and agates, too. 48 pages, watercolor illustrations, 9" x 10". Hardcover with jacket. $17.95

Antler, Bear, Canoe: A Northwoods Alphabet

#061820864X. In this companion to Gathering: A Northwoods Counting Book, Betsy Bowen again captures the vibrant magic in each northwoods day through effortless prose and colorful woodcuts. While the canoe waits beneath the heavy snow and the river freezes over, bears turn in for long winter naps and people spend time reading by the fire or bundled up in layers. But when spring comes, it's time for kayaking, fishing, and listening to the quiet pond sounds of the new season. All of this and more is celebrated in Bowen's warm and unusual alphabet book that introduces children to the cyclical rhythms of life in our country's northern states. Ages 4-8. 32 pages. $6.95
